Staying Up Orange (Demo)

the frozen wall, and the plastic plants,
staying up orange, screaming hail through the laundry bag,
just one eye, someone else’s clothes,
yeah we’re surrounded, but no one needs to know,

light as air, tracings in the dark,
no i can’t see you but i know just where you are,
the purple glow, you’ll be my patron saint,
if you catch me leaving, just turn me the other way,

the ever-changing man, always in between,
free to fall and rise but never know what it means,
your beauty builds, yeah let the mirrors moan,
yeah i live here, but i don’t call it a home,

it’s not warm and worn, there’s no holy ghost,
just a whistling tea kettle and a spinning rotary phone,
last names down, and sudden in my mind,
it’s no secret, i just guessed and got it right,
